The main critique of the linguists to the studies of turcology that the experts of turcology in Turkey do not study linguistics enough and the literatüre on Turcology have problems due to the lack of linguistics knowledge. But on the other hand, the works of linguistics in Turkey have problems since the linguists do not pay attention to the studies of historical grammar, historical phonetics, morphology and syntax. This study exemplifies the possible contributions of the studies of historical turcology to the linguists who work on the structure and grammar of the Turkish language.
